Berlusconi, from the hospital where he is still hospitalized with pneumonia and leukemia: “I will get over it”


“It’s tough, but I’ll get through it.” These are the words of former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi from the hospital, where he remains in the intensive care unit for pneumonia and recently diagnosed leukemia.

Berlusconi had made these statements to the newspaper “Al-Journal”: “I managed to come back, even in difficult and delicate situations,” he insisted in a column in this newspaper, which is part of his media empire.

Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani told Rai 3 on Friday that the 86-year-old Pole, who was admitted to San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, had “rested and responded well to his treatment”.

Tajani is second in Berlusconi’s party, Forza Italia, which is part of the government coalition headed by Giorgia Meloni. Berlusconi, known as “The Immortal” throughout his career, is currently a senator.

Doctors reported Thursday that he is being treated for a lung infection caused by chronic myeloid leukemia.

Former prime minister and current senator Matteo Renzi, a centrist politician who has been Berlusconi’s longtime rival, sent a message of support on Friday. Silvio rejoiced. We await your smile in the Senate.”

Berlusconi, one of the richest men in his country with a fortune estimated by Forbes at €6.4 billion, has been inducted several times in recent years.

Berlusconi, who entered politics in 1994, served as prime minister for a total of nine years between that year and 2011, and dominated politics in his country for two decades, despite the sexual scandals and lawsuits that tarnished his image.
